Creating great art requires patience. It's a philosophy Shelly Koziana holds dear during each of her photo shoots. The sky's the limit when it comes to each session's time and number of photos: she takes as many as she needs for as long as she needs until her clients are satisfied. At a photogenic Hampton Roads location, Shelly trains her lens on families, kids, pets, and special events. Before preserving her best work with prints, Shelly edits every image, tweaking color levels until they evoke right motif—from realistic to dreamlike.
